Lovers of pie, rejoice. The Real Pie Company is returning to Sacramento.
Piemaker Kira O’Donnell Babich said in a Facebook post that she will open a new shop in the fall at 16th and G streets.
She once operated a critically well-received but short-lived pie shop at 12th and F streets that closed in 2008.
At the time, she acknowledged the closure was an “agonizing decision.” But O’Donnell wanted to devote more time and energy to her family.
Never miss a local story.
Along the way, since closing her shop, she sold pies at East Sac Mercantile.
The new shop, which is being designed as O’Donnell Babich wants it, will have a temperature-controlled dough room.
The space will also include limited indoor and outdoor seating and a selection of locally made ice cream.
But the real draw will be the pastry with fruit sourced from small, local farms and heritage fruit from Gold Rush-era trees. The menu will change frequently, depending on what is in season.
Says the baker in her Facebook post: “We will offer our nourishing house-made chicken pot pies and quiches in addition to our sweet menu items; and, as before, will be making our chocolate cream, coconut cream, and butterscotch banana cream pies as a complement to our fruit pies, galettes, tarts and cakes.”
